    Accuracy, how much is down to the press?

    Guys Anyone know who else manufactures a single-stage press with priming executed on press?..as like Lee press with safety primer tray/lever 'click' arm

    Accuracy, how much is down to the press?

    Used a bog-standard Lee Challenger for years and never had accuracy issues which could be deemed as caused by ineffectiveness of that press - it served me well for years and is now delivering fine, accurate loads for a friend... It's nearly 3.00pm and still no sign of pops...Most likely still doing the 'Do-Wop-Dee-Wop-Dee-Wop' around that press and he's probably gone Comfortably Numb 😡...Come in, earth to pops, do you read us? πŸ€”...(or, he's gone to church) πŸ˜ƒ

    Ahh that's your problem, pops...First, something a bit more upbeat on the boombox, then gently grip brass between fingers of preferred hand while boppin' full circumference around your press πŸ€” .....(let us know how you get on, pops πŸ˜‰)

    223 load Vihtavuori N135 or n130

    ukhornet How accurate is 50g Vmax out of a 1:12?......regardless of powder choice and, if that Vmax prints inconsistently, you'll probably have better results with the 50g Spire Point (Hornady) ..it's a shorter pill than the Vmax, which will most likely be more stable for the 1:12 https://www.hornady.com/bullets/rifle/22-cal-224-50-gr-sp#!/ atb

    Round count books.

    Ahhhh I got you... the firearm would probably sell quicker if all the info was written in calligraphy - genius! πŸ˜€

    Need this to be under a fiver if they're trying sell a ruler & pencil with a pad which already has the lines - a stitch-up πŸ˜• B&M Bargains do Jumbo pad for a quid! 😁
  12. maxtich Is there cross-wires here somewhere?....meaning; when he replied "sold" to you...rimmie was meaning the rail was sold to you - that's the way I would have read it - (unless I'm barking totally up the wrong tree) I'm sure this could easily be resolved Good luck
